Most agree that throughout the last few years, new life has come to the Square at the heart of Covington. We have seen a variety of shops, restaurants and eateries open. And others are set to join them soon. What's even more amazing is the number of people you see walking through the Square and sitting on the benches, visiting all throughout the day and evening.

Have you ever thought …

The best way I know to help choose what direction our community, state or nation moves toward is by voting for people who best reflect our own beliefs.
